Thome Boys say hello to Carbonear and GAMP

The team at PA-MOJA is excited to welcome our new sister school, Carbonear Collegiate. Carbonear is our first sister school in Newfoundland and will join GAMP Academic Music School in Philadelphia, becoming a second sister school to Thome Boys School.

Emma Haraga, a grade 11 student at Carbonear Collegiate, initiated the connection. Emma recently moved from Langley, British Columba, where she had heard about PA-MOJA at her high school, Mountain Secondary. She decided to get her community involved in creating a connection to Nanyuki, Kenya.

Emma began by gathering a group of students and teachers to create a PA-MOJA club at her school. They are already busy preparing for their first event, a 30 hour technology famine. We wish Emma and her club the best of luck with this event.

The boys at Thome wanted to say hello to their new school as well as GAMP. Here is a welcome video:
